Learn how your venue can be a front runner in making Memory Matters workshops accessible to ALL people living with mild to moderate dementia in your community.
Whilst researchers work hard behind the scenes to find effective prevention for dementia, more and more people are developing the condition. It is estimated that one person every three minutes is developing dementia worldwide. Our communities need to play a strong part in supporting those with dementia and often feel unskilled, unable and unsure of what is required.
Memory Matters South West CIC have a tried and tested blueprint that is ready to roll out. We are four years into a 6-year project in Cornwall funded by The Big Lottery. We have tested our model of community workshops that keep people well for longer. Our easy to run programme keeps people connected to their communities and has been proven to reduce isolation. Our mission is to create communites where people with dementia can thrive, despite their symptoms.
Cognitive Stimulation Therapy (CST) should be available to EVERYONE living with mild to moderate dementia in ALL communities (National Institute of Health and Care Excellence), yet provision is sporadic. In many areas, people have access to a short course which they feel the benefits too, only for it to stop soon after. Memory Matters Workshops ensure people can access CST for as long as they benefit.
Memory Matters want to join up with communities to make a real difference for the well-being of people living with dementia by providing the support to enable community venues to provide our tried and tested workshops by using our model.
